1NewsIcon Rightwingers are turning on Chief Justice John Roberts after he supported President Obama's individual mandate philosophy, but they shouldn't be: "If you read the opinions, he sided with the conservative bloc on every major legal question before the court. He voted with the conservatives to say the Commerce Clause did not justify the individual mandate."

1NewsIcon From Australia: "Four in ten same-sex couples are Christians, according to a detailed snapshot of the nation's gay community based on the latest census data. Christians represent a smaller proportion of same-sex couples than heterosexual couples, of which more than two-thirds affiliate with the religion."

1NewsIcon Shocking news, everybody. Raising children makes same-sex couples just as tired as straight couples, and therefore less energetic for sex: "Researchers at SF State interviewed 48 gay male couples who are raising children together in San Francisco and Salt Lake City. What they found was that these gay parents had similar lifestyle changes as straight parents, specifically they have less time and energy for sex."

  3. Well, that's Alan Scott's origin. He's on a train, everyone dies except him. Anyone acquainted with the character actually expected this.

    He'll get another romance interest later.

  4. As it is, don't most Green Latern's s.o.'s either die or become villains? Maybe Sam will come back as a Black Lantern, then he can have fulfilled both cliche's.

  5. Holy crap...BLack Lantern Sam.

  6. The reported bisexual boyfriend inspired songs of Adele's album "19", not "21". Still great songs, but a very different album ;)

  8. Actually, POTUS FIRST found out about the SCOTUS ruling on the Affordable Care Act from cable news...they were reporting incorrectly that SCOTUS found the law unconstitutional. Typical.

    He found out that was not the place from...a BLOG! Actually SCOTUSBlog...and White House legal counsel.

    My source for this comment?
    Cable News. Maddow to be exact. Best new thing in the world indeed!

  9. "... gay parents had similar lifestyle changes as straight parents, specifically they have less time and energy for sex."

    I can tell you this, the researchers didn't speak to this set of gay parents. We still find time for sex twice a day - weekends often three times a day. Perhaps it is because we have just one child. With two or three finding time for sex could become a problem. :-)

    "Four in ten same-sex couples are Christians.." Puh...leease tell me this is a horrible mistake. If you are gay and a Christian you are in the same category as gay and Republican - you are not only cutting your own throats, you are cutting the throat of your gay community.

  12. is that even possible....

    i was about to be jealous but then i realized that i love my sleep too much (and am usually too sleep-deprived) to seriously attempt more-frequent sex w/ my husband...we have a healthy, fun sex life but we certainly don't do it seven times a week (once per day on average?!) let alone multiple times each and every day.

  13. (lots of sex is common during the first 6 or so months of dating, but i think you & your husband are way past that time point....)
